Proposed Amendment to the Residential Design Guide - Internal Space Standards

Representation ID: 434

Received: 11/07/2016

Respondent: be:here

Representation:

In the proposed standards it is suggested that a two bed four person unit is to reach a minimum gross internal floor area and storage of 70 m3. We believe if you utilise an open plan layout the same level of accommodation can be achieved in an area of 67.2m². This size of unit will comply with all standards of the London Housing Design Guide with the exception of the overall space requirement. The ability for us to design developments with units at 67.2m² rather than 70m² will assist with the viability of schemes.
